This series of 18 training modules can be used in a five- or six-day workshop to deliver technical content on case management and prevention of common health problems through a community-directed delivery mechanism. These modules build on field experience in delivering malaria services through community effort as well as on the 16+ years of effort by the African Program for Onchocerciasis Control and the Special Program for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases of the World Health Organization and its partners. This approach includes malaria in pregnancy services and illness case management and can be adapted for many locally relevant health issues. A collection of CDI background readings complements the training modules.
